There is a direct relationship between the nature and quality of the product required and the payment made by the customer/employer. Therefore the industrial mechanic millwright has a continuing responsibility to work professionally in order to meet the requirements of the customer/employer and thus maintain and grow the business. Industrial mechanic millwrights are most often involved with installing, maintaining, repairing and removing machinery and equipment in industrial plants and factories.

He or she will plan and design, select and install, commission, test, report, maintain, fault find mechanical industrial systems to a high standard. Work organization and self-management, communication and interpersonal skills, problem solving, flexibility and a deep body of knowledge are the universal attributes of the outstanding industrial mechanic millwright.

Generally, the industrial mechanic millwright works in a team and occasionally alone. The individual takes on a high level of personal responsibility and autonomy. Every step in the process matters. This covers working to provide a safe mechanical installation and maintenance service, in accordance with relevant standards, through to diagnosing malfunctions, and commissioning stand-alone industrial mechanical and automated systems. Concentration, precision, accuracy and attention to detail are all essential because mistakes are largely irreversible, costly and potentially life threatening.
